Food Service Department
Welcome to the Huron City Schools
Food Service Department
There are special people on the staff at your schools whose job is to help improve students’ concentration and classroom participation, increase standardized test scores, and make sure students stay healthy and ready to learn.
Amazingly, these members of our educational team perform all of these impressive feats while wearing hairnets and aprons! Our Food Service employees may not see the inside of a classroom very often, but they do make a daily contribution to the students’ educational success. It is really a very simple recipe: research shows that students who eat well learn better. So the hard work that gets done in our kitchens every day isn’t just about preparing and serving meals… it’s also about helping to make good education possible.
Huron City Schools takes part in the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs. Every school day, nutritious and tasty meals are served to students throughout the district. Our program encourages students to make good choices in food and physical activity for a healthy lifestyle.
The Food Service Director, Sue Whitaker, along with a staff of 15, constantly strive to serve attractive, tasty, and nutritious meals that meet our students’ expectations, while adhering to the strict nutritional guidelines required by the State and Federal Government.
This is our third year working with the “Farm to School” program, which allows us to offer a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Most bread items are now whole grain and we will be working toward achieving the Healthier US Challenged offered by the USDA.
Whether you child eats with us every day or just on special days, your business is important to us.
